Yesterday I got out this old Norge Cookbook that I bought at an estate sale last summer. This book is gigantic and weighs a ton!
It is by the Culinary Arts Institute in New York and written in 1948
I love this picture!
Lots of "odd" recipes in this cookbook, like a lot of gelatin type foods with un-gelatin type foods in them! Like fish in Jello. Ugh!
However I found one that I thought would go perfect with the meatloaf and peas that I had made for lunch and it was:
Dutch Stewed Potatoes
2 onions sliced
1 Tbls. fat, melted (I used Crisco)
1/2 tea. salt (I probably used a little more), dash of pepper
2 teaspoons of minced parsley (I didn't have any so I left it out)
2 cups diced, uncooked potatoes
1 1/2 cups boiling water
2 teaspoons flour
Cook onion in fat, 5 minutes. Add salt, pepper, parsley and potatoes, cover with boiling water and cook until tender. Thicken with flours which has been mixed with a little cold water. For 4.
It actually was very good! I did add a little butter at the end as well.
It tasted a lot like the scalloped potatoes my Aunt Clara used to make in the oven as it's really just boiled potatoes with a white sauce. But it was very easy and quick and I will definitely be using it again. Give it a try!
(p.s. How do you like my pink pyrex! I collect the blue Amish Butterprint, but when I saw this pink one for $2.00, I couldn't pass it up!)
